I've been working on a group of rings for Boskone as well as the new designs.
I love going through my stones and choosing them and I love the way they look in words.
Lavender jade - very delicate
African malachite - densely patterned
Watermelon tourmaline - small and clearly patterned
Golden labradorite - small and vivid
Jadite - very soft subtle greens
Madiera topaz - really the color of the sherry
Bicolored pearl - baroque and pink and white
And now I'm going back to my wax bench.
